I drove to work today. I've ridden all week - usually every day no matter what the weather but as I'm getting over a flu, I thought it best to stay warm. This morning traffic on the Tullamarine Freeway southbound, just near Bell St was terrible. I thought it was just me noticing the difference to how quick I get to work on the bike, or the fact that traffic always slows down when it's a bit wet. Then I see police lights. As the traffic creeps up, ever so slowly, there's a motorbike on it's side and some poor bloke laying in the recovery position but looking unconscious. Another bike was parked next to him, an off duty or undercover police man trying to keep the traffic moving while the Ambulance came. A couple cars had pulled over, maybe to help, maybe they hit him. Who knows. The point is that, it's DISGUSTING that every car goes at snails pace, and some even completely stopped, to just look at this bloke laying there in need of an Ambulance. For god's sake YOU IDIOTS might be the difference between the Ambulance getting there in time and the guy not making it because the Ambo's can't get through the traffic. Here's hoping he's Ok. We deal with enough useless road users every day that the odds can be against us... But actually hindering someone getting help... for your own sick curiosity. WTF.
